The Melissa's Big Shakespeare Score

Take a look at my prettyful! Please try to control your jealousy. ;)

I got my hands on this totally awesome copy of Macbeth during my spring break. Story time! So, my friends and I took a four day trip to a cute little town with a beautiful river. We spent a day shopping at various thrift stores buying all the prettyfuls we could afford. Anyway, we were rummaging through a bunch of old books when one of my friends stumbled upon this 1903 copy of Macbeth. I practically ripped it out of her hands. Sorry! It's a good thing we all have different favorite Shakespearean plays or there would have been a full-out war! Mwahahaha!

I love the tragedies and my favorites happen to be Hamlet and Macbeth. I love it when people go insane and kill other people! I know, how morbid, but that's what I like. And old stuff. I like old stuff. I was definitely born in the wrong generation. Anyway, this was a big win for The Melissa!

  3. SCORE! Dude, 1903?! That's major and it looks like it's in good shape. Put it in a shadowbox and mount it
